Lost Cable Tram Lines #3 St Kilda - Windsor Route

Opened on the 17th October 1891 the St Kilda to Windsor cable tram route went about its business for almost 34 years before the locals bid it adieu on 29th August 1925.

Beginning at the corner of Chapel and Wellington Sts, the cable tram tootled its way along Wellington St, past its engine house near the corner of Marlton Cres and over St Kilda Rd.

Veering to the left immediately after zipping over the major intersection, the tram merrily chugged down Fitzroy St and around the big, sweeping curve to the left that is The Esplanade before throwing an unsuspecting right into Acland St and finishing the run at the corner of Barkly St.
